As a electrical professional preparing his boat for full time active cruising in areas with dubious facilities, here is what I chose to do.

1. Make your boat dock independent. That means having a generator that can run your boat all the time if necessary.

2. Install isolation transformer(s). This separates yor boats electrical system from the shore side electrical grid, and any problems it might have.

3. Cary adapters to connect to either 30A 120v, or 50A 120V, or 50A 120/208 or 120/240 volt power.

On another note, make your boat water independent as well. Have a watermaker that handles your needs. Know how to work on it, and carry spare parts.
